I cannot upload mine - lol.

I had this problem when I tried to take a screen cap of the thing.

First of all, it is a dual monitor setup. Secondly, it uses some rather large 1280 x 960 images from TDK.

I can try to find someplace to host it, but if you want to know what it looks like....

Picasa Web Albums - johnlgalt - My Desktops

That is what it looked like in Vista, I haven't gotten around to updating it for W7 - but the only thing that has changed is that the desktop icons are hidden *and* the W7 taskbar....

This is a Pack containing nearly all the default icons for Windows 7 and they are scalable if anyone wants them.

The beta is Win 7 ultimate, but what do you mean black. Black Background and black taskbar?

In response to your edit, are you SURE you're not using Windows 7 Ultimate?

Writing this from Win 7 Ultimate

Yes, I am running the Ultimate beta from Microsoft.But you mean to tell me that none of you guys know that when you first install the os,you get the basic blue theme by default? All you have to do is open the start menu to see that,the user picture is inside the star menu,not overlapping like the Aero theme,which is used by default in Vista and Server 2008.So by asking if there are any black themes for 7 basic,I mean I would like an Aero type theme for the default install,so I can keep my user picture inside the start menu,but have the color options like the Windows 7(Aero) theme.Right now I'm using the standard or classic theme,so I can use the colors I want.The only thing I can't change is media player,which stays blue no matter what,unless you minimize it,then it's black!Weird eh? So I add my playlists in the blue mp full window,then play my music in the minimal window,which is black.So i'm hoping someone will make a black skin,like wmp11,for wmp12 also.Hope this clarifies things a bit.Thanks
